We are SHEEP because we don't swallow every half-truth and lie that the media darling and street corner con Obama, dishes us. I swear there is special place in hell...

What absolute drivel. There are 26 year-old clueless lib hacks running this website. It is the most radical of msm sites. Shameful.

Yahoo’s been looking pretty bad the last few days too. Even MSNBC’s website wasn’t quite so...I don’t know...stupid (Zooey Deschanel in ‘Big Trouble’)

The writer’s hypothesis is partially correct. A majority of nation voted for a person for whom the truth is a foreign as Bill Clinton hating women.

I fear he might be a little upset that come 11/2, we are going to partially rectify the situation with the House and 1/3 of Senate. We have to wait another two years to rid ourselves of Obama and another 1/3 of the Senate.

Why do voters buy obvious lies?

The question they should be asking themselves is why have their customers stopped buying Big Media's obvious lies. Their very existence depends on that answer.

Why is the lead story, complete with photo, just a half-baked opinion piece? Do they not take themselves seriously as a news site? (No wonder I never go there. Thanks for the reminder.)

Believing itself "scientific," this Progressive class sought to explain its differences from its neighbors in "scientific" terms. The most elaborate of these attempts was Theodor Adorno's widely acclaimed The Authoritarian Personality (1948). It invented a set of criteria by which to define personality traits, ranked these traits and their intensity in any given person on what it called the "F scale" (F for fascist), interviewed hundreds of Americans, and concluded that most who were not liberal Democrats were latent fascists. This way of thinking about non-Progressives filtered down to college curricula.

Glenn Beck having an affair with Michelle Obama:

from Beck's daily email:

Globe, one of those tabloids who will post anything, has Glenn on the front page with the headline "Glenn Beck Sex Tape Scandal and the mystery woman behind it." First of all, any good tabloid would know that Glenn Beck sex tape is NOT the way to sell magazines. But who is the woman behind the alleged scandal? Michelle Obama. Gotta love tabloids.

SHEEP NATION: Why Do Voters Buy Obvious Lies? [photo of Where The Birth Cerificate highway sign accompanies...]

Obvious lies?? Has ever ABC met anyone buying something that =obviously= nothing? We can claim they bought Obama..., but it's not entirely true - ABC sold, not bought, him and while selling they made sure there will be nothing obvious about him...

ABC dreams about sheep nation - they want to be herders so much...

Doesn’t matter, the abcnews.com editor that put together this web feature KNOWS that most will NOT read the content, they will see “Sheep”, Lies” and the birth certificate billboard.

“Typical journOlisters”

It’s a funny billboard. You are right.

They usually go bonkers when they start to realize Obama misled them, used them, pivoted on them. Point at people raising questions they won’t ask, ridicule. It is soothing to their own souls.

Like an Orwellian Five Minute Hate Session.

Ha!

LSM continues to alienate its customer base. What other ‘product’ (and news certainly is sold and marketed) out there does this?

Leftists replace religion with their own religions (socialism, environmentalism, etc.) and view ‘news’ as another opportunity to indoctrinate.

I think Zero will eventually have to deal with this issue if he wants to be re-elected. He was able to take the elitist route during the first election because he had incredible momentum behind him, momentum that’s quickly waning. It’ll mean millions of wavering votes that will make or break his re-election.

Notice how they open up the “report” with a term like “Americans mistakenly believe Obama is Muslim”? Are they reporting or trying to sell the idea Americans are wrong?

How do you know they’re mistaken? You’ve never investigated it. You people are nothing more than a propaganda arm of the Blight House spewing crap and agenda.

SHEEP NATION: Why Do Voters Buy Obvious Lies?

Rat-infested, sewer-level pathetic bias. The lamestreams reveal themselves as just partisan punks, more and more every day, and the thinking American public get it and continue to render them irrelevant. Won't be long before Obama praise alone will not provide enough of a kick to endure .. they have to earn $$$, too. Not surprisingly, David Westin, ABC head of news, just suddenly 'retired.'

Obama was born to a Muslim father (bigamist, thus Obama is also a bastard).

Muslim is defined by birth in that culture. Therefore, Obama is a Muslim. He may not practice but he is as Muslim as he is African.

If he’s now practicing Christianity or is an atheist he is an apostate and, by Islamic law... Well, you know how the boys are about chopping off heads.

SHEEP NATION: Why Do Voters Buy Obvious Lies?

Because people would much rather believe a palatable lie than a painful truth.

The truth that perhaps, the people who are supposed to be telling us the truth (the media and the Dims) are, in fact, without a doubt, lying.

Ummmm WHY do supposedly legitimate “news organizations” buy the obvious lies? Aren’t they (MSM) risking alot by trying to turn this onto the voters/public who question some of these issues? Do they think we will just go away if MSM such as abcnews tries to imply we are just stupid to wonder about the legitimacy of the usurper meeting the citizenship requirements?

I think a good counterpoint to the focus on the “birthers” would have been to include something about the 9/11 “truthers.” But there was nothing about that in the article.

Good Question...Why do voters buy Obvious lies:

1) I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky

2) “In 50 years New York City is going to be underwater from global warming,” – 2002, former president Bill Clinton.

3) Bush stole the election through the Supreme Court. Gore had more votes, and should have won. Bush is an illegitimate president.

4) The GOP wants to abolish Social Security

5) This is the worst economy since Herbert Hoover – John Kerry, 8/6/03,

6) Hillary Clinton dodging bullets in Serbia

7) ‘Count Every Vote’—Al Gore on Florida yet he refuse US military votes from overseas

8) The Republicans are to blame for companies moving jobs overseas....not high taxes, unions or government regs

9) 9-11 was an inside job

10) Chappaquiddick incident—Ted Kennedy—enough said.
